I have three Papillons and two of them have a thing for tissue paper and toilet paper that is over the top. They seem to find it no matter where we hide it and shred it all over the house. Worse, they eat it. Any tips on getting them to cease and desist?
Dogs often fixate on things they grew up with as puppies.
I have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier that has a thing for tissues, torn newspaper and plastic bottles. He acquired his interest in these as the breeder used them in the kennels when he was a puppy.
My best suggestion is to make it harder for your dogs to chew undesirable objects by placing them out of reach and then give them appropriate dogs toys to chew on, along with encouragement from you to chew on them.
It will take a while, but it can be done.
You just need to be persistent and not make a scene when they do get some paper. The dogs read you shouting and being excited as a reward and will do it all the more. Just give them a firm "NO" in your best serious voice.
My cat is like that with toilet paper. I have to keep it in a box so he can't get at it.
Yes, but without the fiber he may become "irregular."
Help, I am getting tired of wiping up after 'em! The pup got hold of the end of a toilet paper the other day and the expression on his face was priceless - he thought he'd found the mother lode!
My pup tries , early each morning, to find something paper to run off with. She used to tear any paper-- envelopes, mail, reciepts, also socks, when available-- into tiny shreds (smaller than my paper shredder does). I confront her and say sternly,"No paper!"-- she runs off and grabs a chew bone, which she apparently stashes away for just such an occasion. She knows.
She is better now. We leave fewer temptations. She still sometimes tries to grab something and run-- but she no longer shreds.
I have three Bassets, one eats toilet paper, kleenexes and paper towels. It is like an automatic ass wipe. Hasn't hurt him. We tend to keep it out of his reach as much as possible.
That's funny. Our pup got hold of an old box of pellet thingies that my daughter left out. They are little pellets of gunpowder that kids throw on the ground and they make a little popping sound. I don't know how much was left in the box when the dog ate it but he seems to be fine. I figured the only way I could tell if he'd eaten to many would be to throw him on the ground and see if he popped! He's fine but sometimes I think I have goats disguised as dogs!
Randy Godwin's wife and I once had two wolf-dogs that we kept out at Randy's farm. He said they once ate an entire string of Christmas lights. It didn't seem to bother either animal!
we have two cats who love to attack the toilet paper roll and we often toilet tissue being tug and pulled from the bathroom into our living room. too funny to watch. So your not alone, cats do it to.
I know papillons are pretty small, but I don't suppose a little toilet paper will hurt them too much - its mainly a nuisance, right? of course, its probably not exactly good for them - but here's something interesting - grey whales seem to swallow a lot of stuff like:
contents of one dead whale's stomach included-
a golf ball, duct tape, sweat pants, pieces of plastic, surgical gloves, small towels, and over 20 plastic bags and then it actually died of other causes.
so when you think about it what's a little tp?
oh, and I also heard about a small dog who swallowed a diamond ring and the owner had to examine every poop for several days! until finally - there it was, nice and shiney!
I have a friend who swallowed a gold dental crown and had to go through the same process. After that, her husband always said she had a s***ty smile.
My labrador tends to do that too. Often with used toilet paper...

Which way should a toilet paper roll be put "on"? Over the top? From the bottom? Does it matter?Some say, that the way a person treats his or her toilet paper roll, explains a lot about their personality. I for one, insist on going over the "top", and will even...

Have you ever heard of a brand of toilet paper called Mama Love 555?The first place that I've ever seen this type of toilet paper was at a Motel 6 in Bakersfield, California, and since then I've never seen it in stores or anywhere else.

What are your thoughts on this?I found this in one of our bathrooms today... hmmmmm.... And it's not the first time! Why don't people just put the roll on the dispenser? Your thoughts? (Not sure how to categorize this question - family, health, social issues [lol]?)
